One of the Americans abandoned by Obama during nuke talks is sentenced to prison in Iran
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran has sentenced detained Washington Post journalist Jason Rezaian to an unspecified prison term following his conviction last month on charges that include espionage, Iranian state TV reported Sunday.
Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejehi, the spokesman for Iran's judiciary, announced the punishment in a statement on the TV station's website.
"In brief, it is a prison sentence," he said. The verdict is "not finalized," he added, referring to an expected appeal.
